Rated 3 out of 5 by ActiveSportsMom Not up to Expectations
After close to 20 years, the zipper on my trusty old mid-weight jacket gave out on me so I was looking for a new jacket to wear when the temps are in the 40s. This seemed to be just the thing (rated warmer down to -10). I don't mind paying for quality as I keep things a long time.
I ordered the black large.
The day it arrived, it was nice and sunny, in the high 40's with a brisk wind. I quickly put it on and headed out for a walk with the dog to test it out. Wasn't happy with the jacket for a number of reasons and when we got back, I put it right back in the bag to be returned.
First of all, the sleeves were a little tight when worn over a sweatshirt (I even had my daughter try it on and she agreed#. Second of all, my arms were cold! Third, the color of the sleeves were much more #light# gray than the pictures would have you believe. And fourth, there were only the 2 pockets #I like more, especially an inside pocket#.
It's probably a great jacket for someone is more active while wearing it #eg going for a jog) and wearing less bulky layers underneath. Unfortunately, it didn't suit my needs.

Great jacket for biking/jogging in cool weather. As been in 20s-30s here and it is working well to keep core warm while jacket breaths well in the back. Based on comments, we thought the jacket would run small, but XS was right fit. My wife is 5'4" and 110 lbs and typically order an XS petite.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Adventurelady excellent quality
Jacket is very well made and the brilliant blue is beautiful. I love the jacket and the look but not for my shape. It seems to have more square shoulders and smaller bust more like a man's cut which works for some ladies but not for me. Sadly I am returning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Gigi99 Favorite running jacket!
Very light weight...pockets are large and fit, ipod, phone, gloves, etc easily. The only problem with this jacket is now I want a second one in another color!

This jacket fits great, is very warm despite the torso being the only down filled part. I'm average size 5'7" 135, the sleeves are nice and long and it is super comfortable. I wore it running in the 28-30 degree temp and it was a bit too warm, and if noise bothers you, it makes kind of a swishy noise as you run. Otherwise it is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by grandpa4 very sharp jacket
got this jacket for my daughter for her birthday. She loved the look of the jacket. sleeves were plenty long enough for her which sometimes is a problem with jacket. Got a small and it fit her well. Very pleased with the product

Rated 2 out of 5 by punkybrewster Fatal flaw in jacket
To start off with, this is a nice, well made jacket that looks good. The only problem is I found it very tight in the chest area. I usually wear a LL Bean small, but tried it in both the small and medium, and both were tight - it was difficult to move arms around. I do not have a large chest by any means and this isn't a problem I normally experience, so it seems that the jacket wasn't sized well in that area.
